OMG they drive me mad! Do you know the ones I mean? Tiny little pin prick holes on the front of t-shirts, right by your tummy area?
Earlier this week I wore a beautiful lime green t-shirt from Mint Velvet with my denim shorts. I’m pretty sure it was okay when I put it on. But by mid-afternoon I spotted two of those annoying little holes had appeared. This is not the first time on my t-shirts. Some I have taken back to the store (if it is the first time wearing it), some have had to be binned, some are still hung in my wardrobe with me wondering if they will show if I wear them.
So with another t-shirt about to be lost I decided to google it. And I am not alone, there is a t-shirt hole phenomenon going on. It is discussed at length on the internet, in chat rooms and by other bloggers.
Moths have been dismissed – not possible as moths are not that fussy, they don’t just eat at the front of an item of clothing. Fabric quality does seem to be an issue and finer t-shirts are more at risk.
But it would seem the reason is simple. The holes appear due to rubbing against the fastening / waistband / belt of your jeans. And the fact that this is an area that is subject to extra wear and tear as it is ‘worktop’ height.
So that’s it. And the solution!?
Do you have this problem? Have you found a better solution? If so, I'd love to hear from you.
